World of Warcraft: fulfilling the desires from real life you didn't know you wanted in-game.
Selfies are the new way of life
I wanna post a selfie but i don't wanna post a selfie cause i'm ugly but i wanna post a selfie do you see my problem
I took an elfie.
I can't wait for this one. It should be fun.
As a professionally trained photographer and camera enthusiast, I aughed so loudly I frightened my dog when I saw the Mk II upgrade. I know not many will find that as funny as I did, but every photographer who's bought a new camera a month before the announcement the "new, better, faster" model (looking at you Canon) will appreciate it. :-)
I look forward to the millions of blood elf selfies being posted to this item's Wowhead page come 6.1 live :-P
Hahahah. This is epic! xD
Your basic camera,
, is rewarded from the new mission
is a reward from
. It upgrades your camera to the epic toy
The upgraded camera comes with 3 special filters:
Enables a sketch filter for your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera.
Enables a black & white filter for your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera.
Enables a death filter for your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera.
Other spells associated with the camera:
Frame the perfect shot and take a selfie!
Exit selfie camera mode.
Upgrade your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera to the Mk II version with 3 unique filters.
Frame the perfect shot and take a selfie!
Takes a picture with your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera.
So... it's Print Screen the item?
On one hand, i loathe the very concept of selfies. On the other, shiny toy...
Im conflicted and confused.
Brace yourselves, /duckface emote is coming! "This selfie thing is so getting out of control..."
I don't have an instagrame account, but now i register it for my draenei dk :D
Super Emo Lens Flair In Effect Camera!
So, when someone uses this camera, do you see them standing round like an idiot posing for themselves (like in real life)? 'Cause if I see people taking selfies, I'm gonna photobomb them with
I still don't understand the concept behind hating selfies. It's a way of cataloging your appearance for the day, a way to say "I think I looked good today" (the three-way rhyme wasn't intended). It's fun, and it should be embraced. And, in contrary to popular belief, it
, in fact, possible to take a selfie without doing a duckface. Stop hatin'!
Can I get an ingame Starbucks with this?
now i can gank lowbies and take a selfie of myself in front of their corpse :D
When Lor'Themar was at the table i kept on seeing him look at me while he was with Jaina.
Do you think he was just doing that to make me jealous?
Because he was totally /flirt'ing with me all night last night and I don't know if it's a raid call or not.
So... like what do you think? Did you think Jaina was pretty? How did she even get in here? Do you see her?
She's so short and that robe is so tacky. Who wears purple?
It's not even midsummer, why does the RL keep on playing festival music?
After we go to the outhouse, can we go smoke some fireweed?
I really need one. But first,
Let me take a selfie
Meh, i tried...
in case someone doesn't get it)
I dont want to live on this World (of Warcraft) anymore...
can't wait for the selfie stick.
Совсем еб@нулись уже...
>Hey dude, are you coming we are rdy for the boss.
>Im on my way there,
But first let me take a
Heeeeey, why should we fix classes, balance pvp, fix bugs that have been in the game for years. We can add a SELFIE camera instead, now you can take selfies, what a great feature in World of Warcraft, applaud for Blizzard.
First in-game twitter and now this? Amazing! Now I can't wait for more useless stuff to come out instead of fixing the actual game.
Brb, gonna check if my
garrison orders are done.
This is just pathetic. How sad...
Are you kidding me? what's next? arcades that you can play in your garrison? a theater you can watch in your garrison? or an ipad item? this is stupid, why blizzard? just why?
I wouldn't be surprised only a tenth of the people whining over this item would actually be upset about it if it had just been called a "Camera".
These selfies are priceless, I can't wait to go silly with them!
Worthless new feature is entirely useless.
Where's my dance studio?
Raid leader - "Okay is everyone ready to pull the first realm kill heroic man? We have another group competing against us, so we are on a time limit"
Girl - "Hold on *SELFIE* *153 selfies later* "okay I'm ready"
I honestly cant wait for it, I think it shows that World of Warcraft wants to look after all of the players not just a select few you want "pvp" balanced or this or that is broken.
What's the name of set in the picture nr 8?
Well it seems like everyone has gone crazy, so i guess we should just add a new feature to wowhead already then:
#hashtags for everything, items, screenshots, etc. :P
Awesome! As someone who loves screenshotting in World of Warcraft, this will make some great additions to my album.
Now I just wish there was a toy that let you move the camera around in third person so your character isn't in the center all the time.
So that you can tell all your friends you took a
WARNING: Snapping pics too quickly will cause the ugly "screenshot captured" text to appear in your pics until it fades (usually only takes a second or two). I hope this is something they can disable while in camera mode, because it's really annoying for this toy.
I'm sorry. This is just really sad. You could always take a screen of your character, but pandering to this selfie crap is pathetic.
My response to asloverago, Selfies are hated on because they don't need to be shared with everyone. Catalog the way you look for that day or use any other excuse, it's still looked at as a mental disability. Plus, I don't need to see all that crap in my timline.
I cannot understand: is it makes only "selfie" with new character model or with that model which I currently use?
I hope they will enable it to be used on mounts and not sure if its common with most races but as blood elf if you take a selfie from the upside you wont tilt you head to look in to the camera, but as night elf you do.
Selfies in the WoW universe...
...Not sure why, but I'm okay with this.
People are acting like selfies are “unhealthy” and “self-absorbed” when old-ass generations sat and got their selfies painted for hours. Ancients Egyptians made solid gold statues of themselves. Ancient Greeks/Romans made marble statues of themselves. Think about that for a second before you $%^&* about someone snapping a photo of themselves for a second.
Just a word of caution - you get dismounted (whether moving or stationary) if you are flying on a mount when trying to use the camera.
does the field photgraphy mission appear right a way or do i have to wait a week for it to appear in my missions list?
ok don't slam me but got this item on a garrison q, took a picture but where does it go? Snapped away while making stupid faces but I can't see what happens to the snap.
Also note to self, didn't know I had such bad teeth!
I took a W.O.L.F.I.E.
Just took a selfie and did
You and your wretched selfies!
I cannot describe my glee when I saw this item arrive in my bags. Right away I had a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch with almond milk, because of course I'm a vegan and I don't eat anything with a face. Then I quickly put on my super tight jeans, rocky horror picture show t-shirt, and a v-neck sweater from Urban Outfitters, even though it's 90 degrees outside. I of course avoid the sun to maintain my pasty white complexion, and wear SPF 1000 sunscreen along with my eyeliner. My pictures are going to be so groovy.
I grabbed my S.E.L.F.I.E. camera and ran outside to my Prius, you know the one with the Greenpeace and rainbow bumper stickers, I took my first photo from inside, I never smile, I always pucker my lips and tilt my head, because that indicates how I'm not tied to any social standing. Then I head on down to Starbucks for my morning Double Half-Soy Nonfat Decaf Organic Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino. I'd stay and chat like I normally do with several other people who don't care about each other's opinions, BUT I HAVE SOME PHOTOS TO TAKE! WOO!
I stop at the little tobacco shop down by the harbor and get some of the hard to find Lucky Strike cigarettes, then make my way to my favorite art gallery. On the way I hear my my favorite indie-rock song and I start jamming to it, and take another S.E.L.F.I.E but then I realize the song is actually on the radio, so I hate it now because they are SUCH sellouts.
Even though I'm so totally deck, you better not call me cool, or even deck, because I don't fit into any "category". Be right back, going outside to smoke, and take another S.E.L.F.I.E., again. Check my twitter updates, I'm also on pinterest, but not Facebook, because of course that's too mainstream. I LOVE THIS CAMERA!
From what i have gathered, This S.E.L.F.I.E Camera is obtained via Garrison Follower mission <See my Screenshot once it is Submitted-approved>. The Mission is lvl 100 follower required and 100% complete rate and takes 4hrs to do so. I have obtained this mission from only 1 toon so far, (have 12 total, but only 7 with garrisons).
Engineers can take one while riding the glider! Also, you can take one while falling. (I found these out while trying to take a selfie while flying, which dismounted me lmao)
Looking for feedback on how many missions you have done or did to get the cam. My main has done well over 3 dozen missions and I have yet to see the cam.
I LOVE when new fun things are put in the game, then they don't let me have them.
You can actually use this in Druid forms. I've submitted two screenshots, so hopefully they'll be added. You can't make funny faces, or hold the camera with your paws, obviously, but your head does follow the camera for some pretty cool shots.
Edit: Oops, forgot to mention. The mission to actually get the camera will eventually show up. It seems to be just random. My main got it the morning after 6.1 dropped, but none of the other characters have had it pop up yet. It's a 100% success mission when you do get it, so any follower can be assigned to it.
Man, I want to be able to use the shots I take as friend personal icon... OR decorate my garrison with em to mess with ma troops! I need YOU to serve in my army! XP
In case you were wondering.
I've done over 250 garrison missions, and still no camera! Anyone know how many it will take?
Why isn't this a BoA toy? I got the mission on an alt and got the camera, but I want it on my main.
Now if only it wasn't impossible to get the camera on your characters...
Yay one minute of fun before it becomes another thing you'll never bother with, GJ blizz !
How original ...
They created item with PrintScreen function. If you looking for selfie photos, check Games/WoW/ScreenShots. But don't try to find any separated folder, or at least different name. It is really only common PrintScreen with name like WoWScrnShot_022815_182653.jpg
Does anybody know if Blizzard is at least working on a fix for the 'bug' that makes it so (at least some, if not all) players that have Real ID disabled don't even have the option to turn the Twitter functionality on? I noticed the day of the patch that I didn't have the option to enable it the way most did, and later was able to work out that some conflict from having disabled Real ID long ago was why, based on something one of the WoW devs had tweeted... apparently it is some conflict, the only way Blizz could turn this off on children's accounts with parental controls activated was to universally remove the option for every single account that had disabled Real ID across the board. Or something like that.
This is such an obscure issue that it is hard to find anybody that even knows what I am talking about, let alone someone with any updates as to if, or when, this might ever be fixed. Item is pretty pointless w/o Twitter functionality IMO, not to mention otherwise-easily obtained achievements connected to this item & Twitter integration that are impossible to get the way things are right now.
Just got this today and found that it doesn't hide your helm when you use it automatically so I made a macro I thought I'd share to simplify hiding of the helm and using the camera. Left click the macro to use the camera, right click it to toggle your helm on/off.
#showtooltip S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera
/cast S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera
/run if(GetMouseButtonClicked()=="RightButton") then ShowHelm(not ShowingHelm()) end
Why this wasn't a 100% chance to spawn mission until you completed it IDK, the rng is ridiculous on this item.
Edit: I'm guessing the 2 downvotes are from people who DO NOT suffer this problem. Meanwhile I still have no camera and there is literally nothing I can do about it but hit mission ques I don't even need like whack-a-mole until the silly RNG decides to give me the mission.
Your camera--Give it to me.
Anyone aware if this can be used to take a picture of a party, or just as the name implies of one self.
Best used to take selfies in BGs with flyhacking botters in the background. Pls tweet & tag @Blizzard
Can be used with
for some pretty funny aerial shots.
It's kind of funny, the novelty of the item has already worn off, and I don't even have one yet.
How & where do you get this 'camera' especially when it says it's rewarded for doing the Field Photographer which requires you need to have it in order to take these selfie pics ?
If you mount;
Vial of Sands
, the camera becomes sided like this image given below:
Example of sided Camera
Was doing the
Field Photographer (Achievement)
when I randomly came across this, just felt like sharing it.
This and Twitter integration. "Check out my new helm. #raiderforlife" :P
Just a heads up for all u druids (unsure about shammy wolf) but if u are in a druid form and have the cam on if you right click off your shape shift u then become unable to do ANY spell, or use any item or anything as for you become silenced.
Not fun if you are just about to pull a boss or are mid fight
Only way i have seen to fix your char is to /logout then reenter the world reloading does not work
So... guessing any additional copies of this item after one has the upgraded version can be tossed right? I don't seem to be getting the upgrade item on other toons.
Where do you obtain the Selfie Camera ?
Is there anything you have to like specifically do to get the quest for this...? I haven't had it once in my Garrison.
showing you just how ugly your character really is!
Using this as a gnome while under the effect of
angles the camera directly at your man-package. Just an FYI.
I wonder; can you still get this selfie camera after patch 6.2?
I'm asking this because I was gone from wow for quite a while and now I'm back and I see everyone with a selfie camera which I want too.
Okay, don't shoot me. I deleted my camera from a bag. When I went back to my toy box, the camera was gone. Can it be restored to my box?
If you cannot find it after upgrading, it is in your toy box.
If you have deleted your S.E.L.F.I.E Camera, then use the item restoration over battle net sites to recovery the item.
When you upgrade the camera to Camera MKII, and then right click the upgraded camera (item in bags), then it will be added into your toy box.
I always deleted the camera, but now I became remorseful because there is an achievement with the camera.
Those screens are freaking gold! :D
as of the 7.3.5 ptr you can get the camera by talking to an npc in your capital city, for alliance it is a gnome near the lake near the new embassy
As of patch 7.3.5 on live, you can find the Horde starting quest in the "Valley of Spirits" in Orgrimmar.
On the docks in the marsh area, there is a Goblin NPC called "Vivica Starshot" that has the quest "Light Camera Action."
You do NOT need need "Trivial Quests" tracking enabled to see this quest.
1) Iron Box @ 63.88 19.58 in Orgrimmar
2) Standard Scope - Made by Engineer. I purchased mine on the the AH.
3) Russet Belt - In leatherworking building in Orgrimmar purchased from a vendor
To find box:
1) Head NW up the ramp starting at the Hunter's Hall heading towards Orgrimmar Rear Gate.
2) You will pass a set of trees on your right and then left
3) After the set of trees on your left, there will be stockpiles of boxes on the left
4) Underneath the wooden scaffolding, you will find a wooden crate that you need to interact with in order to get the iron box.
Alliance quest is given by
in Stormwind, just outside the northwestern exit of the Dwarven District by the waterfall at 61.33 22.70.
Horde is given by
, 34.50 70.80 Orgrimmar at the southernmost bridge in Valley of Spirits.
Picking up this quest will disable it for all other characters on your account, as it's supposed to be a unique item transferable through mail - even cross-realm.
#horde #selfie #questgiver #tomtom #orgrimmar #org 34.52, 70.82
I have both a horde and alliance character. I made my SELFIE camera in my horde account. It says it's Blizzard Account Bound, but I can't access it as my alliance character. Any tips on this? Or do I have to make it again from scratch?
Also- I received the quest to make the SELFIE cam in Orgrimar and this quest showed up in my alliance character's quest log. My horde character is pretty new and didn't have the coinage to buy a standard scope, so I bought it in my alliance account since the quest log showed the horde quest. Went back to my horde character and even though I had the items it wouldn't let me complete quest. I had to get my own standard scope as a horde character in order to complete. Hope this helps someone else in my situation.
Get quest from goblin Vivica Starshot in valley of spirits - will be on the wood walkway by the water with another goblin taking pictures.
1) get the belt from the tailor vendor in The Drag - don’t pay 100+ gold in auction house.
2) scope get from engineer or auction house but be ready for AH prices if you go that route.
3) the iron box is in a wood crate around 63.99, 19 (get coordinate addon if you don’t have it). When you click the crate you get the iron box and a rat attacks you or nearby NPC.
4) then turn in to the goblin and you are done.
Now you can complete the achievement for taking photos in the areas listed. The questline does continue for additional camera options. Any photos taken will be stored in your screenshots folder.
I love this camera! I hate selfies in real life, but for some strange reason I can't stop taking them in wow... :)
You can find your S.E.L.F.I.E.S under World of Warcraft > retail > Screenshots
So, does anybody else have an issue after Shadowlands Prepatch when using it, the character doesn't pose, just stands there?
Is this still obtainable?
